I know I haven’t been saying much again. This past weekend on the 21st Fantasy Faire opened. Nine sims, 8 of them full of some of the best creators on the grid all for RFL. Sincerely the work, the dedication, the spirit surrounding it… all phenomenal and I’m thrilled to be a part of it. Every year I relay in real life on a team, and in Second Life I try to do my part as well getting involved.
From Saturday April 21 to Sunday April 29, 2012, thousands of Second Life residents and creators will come together to support the American Cancer Society’s vision of a world without cancer. Nine Second Life sims will be transformed into the Fairelands, a fantasy continent created to host Fantasy Faire 2012, to benefit Relay for Life of Second Life (RFL of SL).
Fantasy Faire 2012 is the largest gathering of fantasy designers, enthusiasts, roleplayers and performers in the virtual world. Nine days of shopping, live music concerts, auctions, hunts and roleplaying to benefit Relay for Life and the fight against cancer. Avatars, clothing, furnishings, gadgets, goodies and exclusive items are available from more than 130 of SL’s top Fantasy Creators, spread across nine stunning sims designed by some of the visionary artists behind many of the hottest spots on the SL destination guide.
Fantasy Faire 2012 will be open to the public April 21 -29 and accessible from the American Cancer Society sim. We welcome you to come and join the story.
When you can’t be with us in person you can follow our progress, listen to interviews and special shopping spots on Fantasy Faire Radio : http://fantasyfaire.serverroom.us:5896
This past week I have been able to be a part of some very interesting moments…. one being a band! The Jungle Bungles traveling from sim to sim playing a set of steel drums with a group of people following along. Led by the Capt. Alia Boroque in ferret form, a few tinies, petites, and even dragons it was a lot of fun until we end up at the Fairlands Junction playing during a belly dance type event. I loved it.
I don’t often get to relax, socialize or be around other folks… we builders tend to be a rather reclusive sort at times. Stepping out and doing something like this can be rare but I am really glad that I stepped out. We raised over 30k Linden for RFL during the couple hour event and had fun while doing it. I’m sorry but there’s just something really funny about a group of tiny avatars playing the drums. *snickers*
Fantasy Fair has also been having a hunt that my place is a part of. Purchase a hud, search out keys and books… get prizes then at the end you get another prize from the library. One of the great things about this too is getting to explore each and every sim. They’re really stunning. Everyone outdid themselves this year.
Along with my spot which is on the Shadows Claw sim I also have donated an item as a part of the silent auction. The item is a limited edition bed that I am not going to be reselling as part of my lines. It’s really quite pretty… with tons of cuddles, and accessories.
If fantasy is your thing or just having something a little different then you should check it out. More info is available upon request or you can go to the Fairlands Junction and check out all of the different items up for auction.
I’ve met some great people, had some awesome moments and we’ve raised a lot of money to help the fight against cancer. I think this years event is the best one yet.
You HAVE to go.
